It’s the second official day of IOD but I have already done so much!   I was invited to a special reception for VIPs (thanks Crysta and David!) that included a tour of the Expo as it opened Sunday evening, got to see the colorful balloons in the Arrow Education booth where Arrow’s Carolann Kohler is doing a wonderful job of promoting our classes (back in biz, yay!), attended the Break Free Forum yesterday and then…best of all…our champagne tasting, where I was able to catch up with so many friends and colleagues.  Many thanks to Donna Dordai for her help making it all come together while I am in meetings and sessions, and Tara and Paul for the great food and service last night.  Locavore is awesome and they were doing Baltimore proud!

I am far from a great photographer but some pictures are on The Fillmore Group’s Facebook page.

TFG and Arrow Bring Back Training with a BANG! #ibmiod

To everyone joining us at IOD, I invite you to stop by Arrow ECS’s booth in the Expo, #1309, to pop a balloon and possibly win a valuable training class prize – or an iPad!  Arrow ECS is one of the four new IBM-selected Global Training Partners, and in addition to being The Fillmore Group’s software distributor, Arrow is the partner TFG has aligned with to continue to deliver IBM Authorized Information Management classes.

To qualify to win you must stop by the booth and pop a balloon.  Special prizes are in *some* balloons.  Good luck!  Let’s get IBM IM training restarted with a BANG!
